ClashRock The Casbah

Now the king told the boogie men You have to let that raga drop The oil down the desert way Has been shakin' to the top The sheik he drove his Cadillac He went a-cruisin' down the ville The muezzin was a' standing On the radiator grille Chorus: Sharia don't like it Rockin' the Casbah Rock the Casbah Sharia don't like it Rockin' the Casbah Rock the Casbah By order of the prophet We ban that boogie sound Degenerate the faithful With that crazy Casbah sound But the Bedouin they brought out The electric kettel drum The local guitar picker Got his guitar picking thumb As soon as the Sharia Had cleared the square They began to wail Chorus Now over at the temple Oh! They really pack 'em in The in crowd say it's cool To dig this chanting thing But as the wind changed direction And the temple band took five The crowd caught a whiff Of that crazy Casbah jive Chorus The king called up his jet fighters He said you better earn your pay Drop your bombs between the minarets Down the Casbah way As soon as the Sharia was Chauffeured outta there The jet pilots tuned to The cockpit radio blare As soon as the Sharia was Outta their hair The jet pilots wailed Chorus (Spoken throughout the last chorus): He thinks it's not kosher Fundamentally he can't take it You know he really hates it © 2018
